Darlings, today I am utterly exhausted. So I'll just take the brakes off the com box and let you chat. The topic of the day is, "Is Catholicism more a personal lifestyle choice or more a commitment to a community of faith?"
I know I've loaded the dice a bit, since I bet none of us really like the phrase "personal lifestyle choice." So really what I mean by that is, "Can you be a Catholic without any other Catholics? Can you just be Catholic on your own? Or do you need to be part of a parish (seminary, etc.) community?"
Apologies to the non-Catholics for this exclusive post. But it's the question that is haunting me today.
